Berend HOEKSTRA

Berend Hoesktra (1958)

Born in 1958 in Roosendaal (Holland), Berend Hoekstra now lives between Holland and Belgium.

He does not count himself at all in the Dutch tradition of Rembrandt or Mondrians. His painting is rather reminiscent of the Tintoretto or Veronese with its easy and volatile brush line.

His works are not traditional: they seem to be still in the making, open and unfinished, yet full of power and vitality. Enriched with motifs from the oceanic culture of Polynesia, the visual language oscillates between image and alienation.

His work is a form of resistance of the imaginary against a world where it can neither, nor wants to find itself; an imaginary path through the real world.

Berend Hoekstra metamorphoses visual impressions into powerful images.
